This week GQ had the opportunity to speak to the Oceania country’s interpreter, and he revealed DC was interested in him playing the role of Superman in the new film ‘Superman: Legacy’ directed by James Gunn., “He asked me to read for Superman. He was immediately, ‘no, thanks’. It’s too much…it’s too dark for me” Elordi said.

The reason for the rejection of superhero films is the actor’s less interest in playing heroes on the big screen., Despite declaring himself a fan of Christian Bale and Heath Ledger for their performances in ‘The Dark Knight’ directed by Christopher Nolan, the actor is clear that this is not the right time in his career to play a superhero.
“I’ve always been told to give complete answers, otherwise my agent would get mad at me. ‘Anything can happen!’ And obviously anything can happen, but At this stage of my life, I don’t think I have any interest in it. I like what I watch, and watching those movies makes me very nervous” the actor said.
Ultimately, James Gunn and the film team decided David Corenswet will be cast to play the role of Clark Kent In the structure of the DC Universe that the director will implement. Additionally, despite the Hollywood writers’ strike that has halted all productions, Gunn has confirmed ‘Superman: Legacy’ will not change its release date set for July 11, 2025,
